      D.S. Giorgini and Cortes are sure that their riders will be protagonists!


      "The Coppi e Bartali has always been a special Tour for our team Amore & Vita - Selle SMP - says D.S. Maurizio Giorgini – it’s an extremely important appointment  for our colors and we’re very focused and confident that we can achieve some good results. Besides the race takes part on the streets of my region and here we always collected good results and satisfactions, therefore I’m pretty optimistic".


      At the start of the Coppi e Bartali team Amore & Vita - Selle SMP will line up 8 strong riders as Leonardo Pinizzotto , Uri Martins Sandoval, Mike Woods, Viesturs Luksevics, Yukinori Hishinuma, James Piccoli, Kanstantsin Kliminekou and Anatoliy Sosnitskiy.


      Pinizzotto and Martins will be the leaders and both have set the goal of doing well in a stage and defend against the best in the overall standings .


      "After the Vuelta Mexico we haven’t raced - says the DS Phil Cortes - we first dedicated to recovery and then we performed a finishing work for this prestigious stage race which I consider excellent. We really did an hard work, and today I can finally say that the preparation of some of our athletes is definitely at best. Pinizzotto, Martins and Woods can actually fight for a stage win, while from the others I expect a total commitment to teamwork. Besides,, we’ll have an additional "weapon" at our disposal, our former rider Volodomyr Starchyk, whom today is our mental coach and vegan nutritionist. He will follow the boys closely in each stage, trying to assist them at best with his precious advices and nutritional methods which help to purify the body, improve performances and muscles recovery”.
